I Am Awake

Poem By L.W. Smith

Segments of a million smiles
Set sail towards the northern star
Ascending through barren limbs
And onward to the heavens

Separate shards of disarranging falsehood
And regret ridden compromise
Colliding through gray streaks of moonlight

He laughs
Then returns home

This Beautiful Slumber

Descending down the hill I see
The cities lights strategically
Placed about the road below
The warm embrace I’ve come to know

The Little Girl At The Art Museum

Clinging to her mothers hand
As quiet as she can be
A multicolored wonderland
“Mother, may we please? ”

Thoughts After Running Out Of Gas

There’s a certain eeriness before light
Birthed from the serenity of lonely hearts

She’s in her kitchen right now


Such a horrid thought appeared this eve
Whilst the lonesome raven perched in the tree
And his ghastly eyes burned hot upon me
I shiver and think “it cannot be”


Into the brisk of autumn night
While luggage spewed and hands clasped tight
Your eyes shown of fluorescent light
We ran to Hollywood
